Good Morning All and Happy Friday!
I just had to come to you really quick this morning just to get this out. I was perusing Twitter this morning and came across a tweet essentially judging people for tweeting about getting drunk or turning up on the weekend. Essentially bragging that “I don’t have to escape my life because I’m so great and you all are miserable because you’re not on my level.”
GIRL SHUT UP!
I’ve written about people who use social media with a tone of pure condescension. There really is a way to talk about yourself and your accomplishments without coming across as judgmental. You don’t have to try and make people feel small in order to build yourself up.
But really, what I wanted to say is that you don’t know what people are going through. You don’t know why people need to take a break or escape from the current moment. You don’t realize the things that people don’t put online. By being dismissive of what people are trying to do with their weekend and their money. you could be making a bad situation worse.
If you don’t have nothing nice to say, just shut the fuck up.
